It’s Alice’s birthday today, so I’m sending her lots of love and every wish I can think of. She’s entered the ninth month of her pregnancy and she’s due any day now. I’ve written about the hair facts during pregnancy before (the post about Maro last year) so this time I wasn’t thinking about soft and tender motherly images. After I gave her her usual layers, I curled her hair and used some pins to give her a disco hairstyle. There’s been a disco revival in fashion and you see 1970’s inspired images in every Vogue you open this season. Marina Stat did the make-up once more. Being pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t glam it up every now and then you know.
